This month’s Sandwich Isle Pest Solution’s Dog of the Month is Lanie! This program is such a hit that Lanie has actually already been adopted, but since we picked her we felt that she was worthy of having her own post. She is a little beauty whose name means “Sky” in Hawaiian – and she is so sweet it’s as if she dropped straight out of heaven! I am absolutely head over heels in love with this most adorable little lady.
One of the most common pests to businesses worldwide are birds. In fact, birds will gather in almost any place where there is space, food, and a water supply. Unfortunately this includes most businesses in Honolulu and Oahu. And although flocks of birds may seem innocent enough because you see them so frequently, they can actually be quite hazardous.
Have you heard shuffling noises in the walls of your home, or in your attic? Have you noticed that food in your cupboard has little gnaw marks on the packaging, or have you seen little brown pellets that resemble rice? If you have heard or seen these things around your home or property, you may have a rodent problem.
As you may have heard in the news or read online, last month was Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Lyme disease is transmitted to people via the bite of a blacklegged tick aka deer tick. This has left many to wonder, are there deer ticks in Hawaii? Could you get Lyme disease from a tick bite in Hawaii? The answer is no, deer ticks are not present in the area which means that there is not a local threat for contracting Lyme disease. But this does not mean that there are not still problems with Hawaii ticks in and around your home and property or on your family and pets.
